I don't believe you can do that. If you use Notepad to "open" a saved flight - the FLT file, you will see that the complete date and time is saved as a parameter which will be used when you select that saved flight again.Here is an example from one of my saved flights:[DateTimeSeason]Day=219Year=2007Hours=10Minutes=58Seconds=4Season=SummerHappy Flying. :(

So what you are saying is that i cannot save a file and then expect it to be a the right real time.hhhmmm so to get that done i will have to get one of those programs liks FS realtime to automatically do that for me.Thanks......Robert

Hi,When you save a flight the time is saved as part of the file.When you reload that flight the data that was saved is also loaded. This includes the time and the weather conditions.When you reload the flight nothing but an edit to the saved flight file is going to change this, not even FSReal time.What you could do is either edit the saved flight as previously mentioned, or load the flight and then go to the time and date screen and adjust the data.

Hi Robert,Try this:Edit the saved flight file (make a backup first) with Notepad, and erase all entries in the [DateTimeSeason] section (below that header).When you reload the saved flight, with an empty [DateTimeSeason] section, FS wil set the actual date and time. Hope this helpGreetingsRafa

It depends on your operating system, but you can find your saved flights in the "Documents" folder in Windows.In Vista, you can find it in the path: C:\Users\(Your user name here)\Documents\Flight Simulator FilesI don't remember at the moment the path for others version of Windows. Look for into your "Documents" folder. For each saved flight there are two files with the same name, but one with de extension .FLT and the other one with extension .WX. You have to edit the .FLT file, opening it with Notepad.

If using XP, the flights you save are located here:C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\My Documents\Flight Simulator FilesAs mentioned, there will be a FLT and WX file for each flight you saved. The WX file is the weather, and the FLT file contains everything else.Good Luck! :(
